Thursday 25th of November lesson

I really enjoyed the challenge of painting the models more freely yesterday, trying to use colour to create a mood

The combination of looseness and control is something I'd like to continue exploring with you and so I've chosen Emil Nolde's expressionist flower watercolour paintings as a starting point for our research.

Although his landscapes were probably his boldest paintings I hope that experimenting with flower shapes will give us the opportunity to push further into understanding how colour and form can work together.

We are going to move beyond the analogue palette and see how colour value really affects how colour combinations work.
